A playground conversation between Olivia King and Kaidyn Hatton led to a service project for the students at Kathryn Winn Primary School.
King wanted to do something for Christmas and Hatton wanted to do something for the hospital or nursing home so the two members of the Winn Leadership Club came up with Tis the Season to Stuff the Sleigh.
They challenged their fellow students to bring in items to fill the sleigh. First graders were asked to bring in word search books, first graders brought in playing cards and the second graders brought in craft items.
